Human Capital & Talent Management


The Office of Human Capital and Talent Management is dedicated to providing excellent personnel services by assisting the District’s schools and departments in hiring and retaining the best qualified applicants. We are responsible for all aspects of personnel relations from the time of hire through to retirement or resignation. More specifically, the Office of Human Resources assures compliance with employment laws and mandates, handles labor relations and collective bargaining issues, develops staffing recommendations, and administers all facets of the employee fringe benefit program. Our department procedures support the implementation of the District's plan of achievement by providing optimal service and support to meet the collective needs of our students, staff and community.
